The recommended tank size for Cherry Barbs is no less than 10 gallon. However it is not recommended to house them with betta. Barbs are an aggressive creature and are known to nip other fish fins including betta. Tank mates in a community tank with a betta must be very passive. (like Ember Tetra in a shoal of at least 6., Harlequin Rasbora also in a shoal of at least 6., White cloud tetra in a shoal of at least 6., Smaller or Pygmy Cory cats again 3 to 6 or better in a 10 gallon tank. also the tank must be heavily planted in either live or silk plants to give these smaller fish a good place to hide,
